1. Christmas Tree Lights


This one’s the easiest wrapping idea and very cute too. You can replace the pom-pom with buttons, fingerprints or even markers. It’s up to you, just have fun with it!

You will need:

  • white or brown wrapping paper
  • a sharpie or a thick pen
  • pom-pom
  • glue
  • scissors


After you’ve wrapped your gift using the paper of your choice, it’s time to glue the pom-pom on. Make sure you’re creating a garland looking lights string with them.

Then it’s time to “connect” them all with a string. You are going to do that using a sharpie.

That’s it! Quick & easy to do!

2. The Snowman

You can create a snowman in 2 ways: a single gift or multiple ones compiled to form a dimensional snowman. I will show you how to create a snowman on a single box.

You will need:

  • white wrapping paper
  • a sharpie – for the eyes, but I used pom-pom instead
  • buttons or felt – for the buttons, but I used pom-pom again
  • a piece of fabric or ribbon
  • glue 
  • scissors


Wrap your gift using a white paper. This will form the snowman’s body.

If you don’t have all the materials, you can add the eyes, nose & mouth using markers or sharpies.

So there’s no need to panic if you don’t have what you need. I used pom-pom for the snowman’s buttons and eyes, just because that’s what I had on hand.

Lastly, add its scarf using a ribbon or a piece of fabric.

And you’re done! 


3. Snowflake Baubles

This project can be done in a million ways, but I am going to show you how I did it with some snowflakes I cut out from a gift bag. The main idea of it is to create baubles using a material. It can be literally anything you want: buttons, pom-pom, you can draw them – whatever you want really, don’t be afraid to be creative. 

You will need:

  • white or brown wrapping paper
  • buttons or pom-pom or snowflakes (in my case)
  • glue or double-sided tape
  • a marker of a sharpie
  • scissors


Wrap your gift using the paper of your choice. Add your baubles to the desired pattern. Next, draw a line that will form the string of your baubles.

That’s all!  


4. The Reindeer

Another project that can be done in lots of different ways, so it’s up to you how you choose to do it. I went for a simple reindeer look. 

You will need:

  • brown wrapping paper
  • red paper or large pom-pom or red felt – for the nose
  • dark brown paper – for the reindeer horns 
  • sharpie – for the eyes
  • glue
  • scissors


Wrap your gift in the brown wrapping paper.

Next cut out a large red circle that will be the reindeer’s nose. For a bit of dimension, you could use either felt or a large pom-pom. You could also use little ones as I did.

Then draw and cut out the reindeer horns. Search for inspiration online, that’s what I did as well 🙂 Please don’t tell anyone! Haha… Now it’s time to glue everything together.

Lastly, don’t forget to draw the eyes on. You’d definitely need them. I decided to go a little further and draw the reindeer’s face. Finish everything off with a cute little bow.

All done!


5. Snowflake Accent

This is one of my favourites! I had so much fun creating those giant snowflakes. 

You will need:

  • wrapping paper (preferably brown)
  • white paper for the snowflakes (other colours would be fine as well)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • rope


Wrap the gift using the brown paper. Create the giant paper snowflake. I used this tutorial here!

Now, all you have to do it attach it to the main gift with some glue and then finish everything off with some rope.

Add a gift tag and BOOM, you have a lovely looking gift!


6. It’s all about Stickers

In my opinion, this is the simplest out of all! 

You will need:

  • wrapping paper (preferably one colour)
  • Christmasy stickers
  • scissors
  • ribbon or bow (optional)


Wrap the gift using the paper of your choice. I didn’t use the best wrapping paper, but still, it turned out pretty great. Then add the stickers on it.

If you wish to make it more pretty, you can add a ribbon or even a bow, as I did!

And you’re done!

You have an amazing looking gift for your child.


These are just a few of my gift wrapping ideas for Christmas this year! I can’t wait to see my son’s reaction to all these. I think he’ll love them.

Which ones were your favourites? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to know.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Until next time take care & stay beautiful!
